It was the Best of Times and the Worst of Times - part 1

Last week was a really good week and a really hard week too.

First, some of the good stuff:

Last Monday, our lil' guy finally slept extended night - he was 17 weeks! What does extended night mean? Well, I give him his last feeding around 7pm (or sometimes 7:30pm), and he sleeps until at least 6:30am! That totally rocks! Towards the end of the week, and last night too, he would wake up around 4:00am with a soaked diaper. Dawson, being the totally awesome daddy and hubby was the one to check things out with the baby, so that he would not suddenly think that it was mealtime again! After the diaper was changed, the lil' guy went right back to sleep! So, I am thinking that I might bump him up to a size 3 diaper at night - he wears size 2 during the day. I forgot to do that tonight, so we will start that tomorrow.

It is really late and I need to get my thoughts together on this, so I will write more - maybe tomorrow, if I get a chance, I just need some sleep!

Glad to hear it... and I think your sister mentioned that the first nap situation is improving too?

Our oldest was quite a soaker... upsizing the diaper worked well as long as we made sure it was snug enough around the legs. So here's a tip on making a bigger diaper fit better: we pulled the back of the diaper up a little higher and angled the sticky tabs in a V pointing down toward the crotch. Hope it works :) oh, and that's great when hubby's step in to help avoid extra feedings!
